* Grab the book nearest you (the NEAREST, not your favorite book, the coolest, or the most intellectual).
* Turn to page 56.
* Find the fifth full sentence.
* Post that sentence along with these instructions in your LJ:

from The Collected Works of Alexandre Dumas*:

"'That is the reason you hate England!' I suddenly exclaimed, as a light dawned on me."

via various people...

* I'm a huge Dumas fan, and [livejournal.com profile] sdavido has set himself the project of getting me all of his lesser-known works. Getting close...

Do you know what the #1 song was on the day you were born? Go and
look up the number one song for your birth date.

Mine was: "War" by Edwin Starr

Hey, a song I like! Cool!

via [livejournal.com profile] mom2boaz... originally it was circulating via e-mail, but I thought this way would be fun. :-)

Copy this sentence into your livejournal if you're in a non-same-sex marriage, and you don't want it "protected" by the bigots who think that gay marriage hurts it somehow.

First, thought y'all ([livejournal.com profile] lucretia_borgia in particular) might like the new t-shirt that [livejournal.com profile] sdavido got for me. Hee hee. (Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] lensman for the tip!)

And, a cute meme borrowed from [livejournal.com profile] gnomi (I'll trust y'all to keep it rated PG):
1. Think of the first word that comes to mind when you think of me.
2. Go to Google Images and search for that word.
3. Reply to this post with one of the pictures on the first page of results (don't tell me the word).
4. Put this in your own journal so that I can do the same.

What sort of key are you and what do you unlock?

You're a little gold key, and you unlock other people's hearts. Your kindness and willingness to be there for those you care about lets people open up to you knowing they will be accepted. People will rely on you, but be careful not to give more than you have.
Take this quiz!

- Go to Wikipedia. The first random Wikipedia article title that you get is the name of your band.

- Go to The Quotations Page random quotations. (wikiquote project) The last four words of the very last quote of the page is the title of your first album.

- Go to Flickr and click on "explore the last seven days." The third picture, no matter what it is, will be your album cover.

- Be creative. Post it.

1. I can't stand anything greasy. Actually, let's split this into 2 parts. First, I can't stand greasy food. It's not unusual for me to pat pizza dry with a paper towel before eating it. I don't use margarine, salad dressing, or hummus. If I try to politely take a bite of something greasy I'll start gagging. On the plus side, I don't have to worry about my cholesterol level.

2. Second, I can't stand touching anything greasy. I wear dishwashing or surgical gloves for anything slimy, up to and including slicing potatoes. This has been since childhood. One of my earliest memories is of hiding behind some furniture in kindergarten so I wouldn't have to make animals out of clay.

3. I'm allergic to wool and very sensitive to lace or anything similarly scratchy. I've had my feet start itching through my socks from stepping on a wool rug. [livejournal.com profile] sdavido has basically purged all the wool from his winter wardrobe so I can hug him comfortably.

4. I'm very sensitive to light. If I'm driving into the sun, even wearing sunglasses and with the visor down, I have to squint my eyes almost shut to see the car ahead of me. On the other hand I have great night vision. I'm good at finding things in dark attics and basements. This is, depending who you listen to: because I have light blue eyes; because I spent so many years reading by flashlight; because I'm part cat; or because I'm secretly a vampire.
(Actually I'm sensitive to just about everything, but I don't want this to get monotonous.)

5. Everything I'm wearing has to match. Friends often check to see which accessories I'm wearing when they see me. I've been told that I'm actually incapable of not matching; I once wore what I considered to be a horribly clashing outfit to a Halloween party as a costume, but was told that it didn't really clash.

These are the top 106 books most often marked as "unread" by LibraryThing's users. Bold what you have read, italicize what you started but couldn't finish, and strike through what you couldn't stand. The numbers after each one are the number of LT users who used the tag of that book. Read more... )

And now for the answers to the "do you know this?" meme:
(1) The Princess Bride
(2) The Muppet Show
(3) Knight Rider
(4) Good Omens by Terry Pratchett & Neil Gaiman
(5) Battle of the Planets
(6) MacGyver
(7) Sherlock Holmes (via Arthur Conan Doyle)
(8) Pawn of Prophecy by David Eddings
(9) Miles Vorkosigan (via Lois McMaster Bujold)
(10) Beauty and the Beast (TV show)

The assembled multitude got all of them except 8 and 9... though 4 was arrived at circuitously. I guess there's more overlap on the TV shows than on the books!

This one's kind of fun. Some of these will be really easy, but that's only because I hang out with people who like the same things. :-) Ten quotes that I expect my friends will recognize:
(1) Mawwiage is a dweam wiffin a dweam.
(2) It's time to play the music, it's time to light the lights!
(3) A dangerous flight into the world of a man... who does not exist.
(4) God does not play dice with the universe; He plays an ineffable game of His own devising, which might be compared, from the perspective of any of the other players, to being involved in an obscure and complex version of poker in a pitch-dark room, with blank cards, for infinite stakes, with a Dealer who won't tell you the rules, and who smiles all the time.
(5) Always five, acting as one.
(6) You guys are missing out on a good deal if you kill me. See, I'm kind of an expert with just about everything.
(7) When you have eliminated the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth.
(8) No matter how far Garion rose in life, he never forgot that all his memories began in that kitchen.
(9) I've got forward momentum. There's no virtue in it. It's just a balancing act. I don't dare stop.
(10) This is where the wealthy and the powerful rule. It is her world, a world apart from mine.

For those who haven't heard yet (taken from [livejournal.com profile] filkertom's post):

If you, like me, took the LJ Mojo test last month... well, the graphics for the test result have been replaced by some really, really disgusting stuff. As in, scatalogical, not work safe. I believe the term is "Goatse", from a defunct shock site. So go back and get rid of it, although you may want to wait to do it from home. Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] kshandra for the heads-up.

ETA: Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] ataniell93 for linking up with the shmott guy who did it. You can access your info from the meme there. So can everybody else. His attitude seems to be, "We thought it was cool, and f--- you for being stupid enough to trust someone like me."
